Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

The study examined what factors contribute to normal and negative sleeping patterns during acute-care hospitalization while determining the area of sleep most greatly impacted. Participants completed an online questionnaire focused on the areas of rest, sleep preparation, and sleep participation while in the hospital. The study shows rest as the greatest area of sleep impacted. Identifying interruptions and how they affect the occupation of sleep allows OTs to facilitate changes in this setting.
